With 2,700m2 over three completely different floors, the offices enhance the original architecture in a space which prioritises collaboration. The Majorelle studio, specialists in interior design as a transformational vector for companies, was tasked with bringing to life a new way of working which promotes exchange and creativity.The desire to work with a flexible company that was committed to sustainability and could meet the requirements for the new offices led PwC to place their faith in Actiu, who, together with its local partner in France, Arcenik, has been fully involved in the design of the space with the Twist and Vital Plus desking programmes and its modular storage.
When first approaching the project, the Majorelle team found a seemingly contradictory situation; they had to create a contemporary layout in a 17th century building. To make the architectural limitations of an historic building into an opportunity to promote creativity, all the spaces were designed with a carefully balanced blend of tradition and modernity.
The flexible office concept, in which most workers do not have an assigned work station, harmoniously overlaps with smaller, more isolated rooms, and informal meeting areas, to offer both clients and workers a 5 star experience. In different finishes, the modular storage works as both storage and room dividers.
The 5th floor or loft is an open workplace, which includes separate rooms for those who need greater privacy, a naturally bright cafeteria, and a lounge in green tones that aid rest and relaxation. With a clear ceiling height of 6.5 metres, it also hosts a space for client events and receptions, conferences and breakfasts. The outdoor terrace, styled completely in white, offers fantastic views over the Rhône.
